Treeland's Lake Chippewa Flowage Fishing Reports by Jenks Bait and Tackle
Walleye fishing is still hit or miss. Avoid fishing bars and the shallows and concentrate more on deeper weeds and brush. We are quickly approaching November where the Walleyes typically go deep around 30 feet...so I would suggest you find those weeds and brush in about 18-25 feet of water. As far as bait is concerned...some folks are using larger fatheads, but more and more fishermen are moving toward Walleye Suckers and some are still using the occasional nightcrawler.
Musky fishing has been pretty decent. Now that we are deeper in Sucker Season, suckers are more readily available than they have been in weeks past. When dropping the suckers...make sure you are covering the prime areas....deep edges off of the bars and in the river and creek channels. As for artificial...you are going to want to be throwing jerk baits and twitch baits for the most part. I would definitely recommend throwing Bull Dawgs and Suicks. A note on Suckers: Suckers will be getting delivered three times a week and I will be stocking all sizes. However, if you need a large order, please call in advance with a head count and the number of suckers needed and we can discuss the order.
Crappie are still schooled up. Make sure you check out Moore's Bay, Blueberry Flats, and Crane Lake with smaller to medium fatheads, GULP!, and Mini-Mites.
Clear skies except for Monday. Temperatures will be ranging from high 30s and low 40s in the evening to a steady mid 50s to mid 60s during the day. Expect temperatures to drop a little bit by next weekend.
Down a bit
With the end of the season approaching, I want to make sure you are aware of the new hours for the duration of October. We will be open 7 days a week the rest of October from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm. Going into November, we will be open during those same hours on the weekends and by appointment on the weekdays. Also, as a quick reminder, for those that may not have heard yet, Jenk's Bait and Tackle now offers basic gun repair and cleaning for hunting season, as well as special order firearms. If interested, please call with what you are looking for and as always I promise you a fair and more than competitive price.
